Super Hero origin movies usually come in three parts. Part One – our Hero is in a world of their own and just beginning to learn that they have some unusual powers. Part Two – an urgent mission arrives and our Hero must go and save the world while still learning and growing in their powers. Part Three – an overdrawn battle scene must take place between our Hero and some bulked up nemesis. Unfortunately, Wonder Woman follows this three part storyline. Parts one and two are wonderful with great acting from Gal Gadot and Chris Pine. However, part three makes your face hurt and you start to realize that the theater seats are not as comfy as you thought they were. Oh well, 2/3rds of a movie being great are better than nothing.

Today was Austin Museum Day with free access to several museums across the city. Did you know that the Austin Toy Museum was a thing? I found it over in East Austin on Cesar Chavez Street. It is more of a warehouse than anything else, but they let you wander through and remember some of the toys you had as a kid. Pretty cool! Check it out if you find yourself in downtown Austin.
